Hidden Goodness Rolls for February Extra Veg

It's once again my turn to host Extra Veg, the blog linky created by Helen and I which encourages us to try and eat extra portions of vegetables.  Do link up your delicious recipes and inspire us with ways to incorporate more vegetables into our meals.

I baked these rolls on the weekend for our lunches this week.  They are wholesome and delicious but not heavy and are a good accompaniment to a bowl of soup, or make great sandwiches.  I added some finely grated carrot and a handful of oats, as well as some wholemeal rye flour, to the dough for extra flavour and goodness.



Hidden Goodness Bread Rolls

300g strong white bread flour
150g wholemeal rye flour
7g sachet instant yeast
1/2 tsp salt
50g rolled oats
2 carrots, finely grated
1 Tblsp oil
300ml lukewarm water

Mix together all the ingredients in a large bowl until a sticky dough forms.  Knead well on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, this will take up to 10 minutes.  I used my stand mixer to knead the dough for about 7 minutes.  

Put the dough into a lightly greased bowl, cover with lightly greased cling film, then leave to prove until doubled in size.  Knock back the dough, portion into 12 rolls, then shape them and put onto lined baking trays.  Let the rolls prove again in a warm place for 30 - 45 minutes or until almost doubled in size.

Preheat your oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas Mark 6.  Bake the rolls for 15 - 20 minutes until golden and cooked through.

  1. What a fantastic idea to add carrots into roll. I bet they were really moist. I am always sneaking extra veg in wherever I can - I shall come up with a recipe and take part. Brilliant theme and great blog post. Sammie.
